Launch of acclaimed photographer Sharon Socolâ€™s fashion photo book, Plus One: An Outsiderâ€™s Photographic Journey Into the World of Fashion. An exhibition of images from Socolâ€™s book will be exhibited during a party in the Garden of Books & Books in Coral Gables, in collaboration with Gables Gallery Night.
The debut photographic compilation by Sharon Socol, Plus One: An Outsiderâ€™s Photographic Journey Into the World of Fashion (Books & Books Press, 120 pp., hard cover, $60), features 100 candid images from seminal moments at famed fashion shows and parties in New York and Paris between 2001 and 2010. Reflecting her status as a self-proclaimed â€˜plus oneâ€™ for husband Howard Socol, then-CEO of Barneys New York, Socol captured stunningly intimate moments not only of industry icons, including Diane von Furstenberg, Alber Elbaz, Narciso Rodriguez, Zac Posen, Tommy Hilfiger and Giorgio Armani, but also those who toiled behind the curtain â€“ the dressmakers, dressers, choreographers, makeup and hair artists, bouncers and waiters who provided the backbone for those glamorous, fleeting moments.
